We Walk! and we are proud of it.
We welcome all
walkers, including, but not limited to, ordinary walkers,
fitness walkers, power walkers, nordic walkers, race
walkers, hikers, even walk/runners.
The course was selected by walkers to be walker-friendly.
The course follows an old railroad bed, covering a small part of the Fargo to St. Paul run. Most of the course is through rural Minnesota, with excellent views of farms, woods, marshes and, of course, a few of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes.
Every 6 miles or so, the course emerges from rural Minnesota into small-town Minnesota. You'll walk right alongside main street, providing easy access to the restaurants, quick-stop shopping, real bathrooms at the trail head, and even bars.
The marathon and 50 km start at 7am and the half marathon starts at 8:30am. The course stays open until 4pm. This gives you 9 hours to complete the marathon or 50 km (20 min/mile pace for the marathon and 17 min/mile pace for 50km) or 7 1/2 hours to complete the half marathon (34 min/mile pace).
